A nice country park in the city which is ideally located. The park was very quiet and felt very safe. Management was very nice and friendly and made you feel comfortable. This park is very close to LSU and a number of places to eat. When we are in the area we will stay again. We camped at Farr Park Campground & Horse Activity Center in a Motorhome.

Large spaces on grass, near LSU and downtown.

Helpful staff. Solid 50 amp and water. no sewer but there is a dump site. Close to the river for walking.

Such a deal.

The road to the park crosses the RR tracks at a severe angle. check your maps because there are lower track crossings closer to I-12. My coach is just 32' and towing and we expected too, but did not scrape.

Park is great for dog running and there were usually people riding at the horse arena. If the ground is too wet you can park further to the campground rear on gravel. We camped at Farr Park Campground & Horse Activity Center in a Motorhome.

A grass field, but surprisingly level site. Pick your own site as few spaces taken. Arrived on Saturday; office closed until Monday. No sewer, but dump station. We enjoyed seeing the horses play in the pasture. We camped at Farr Park Campground & Horse Activity Center in a Travel Trailer.

This park is set within a horse park arena area. Water and electric only. Gravel roads with grass parking. Older hookups but worked OK. Has bath and shower house that was clean. Friendly staff. Park is in a safe area about 2 miles from LSU. Levee walking path close by. Was there during intense rain, and really wasn't that bad, everything gets squishy here anyways. Has dump station, park suited us well for a few days visit in Baton Rouge area, price reasonable for what you get. Friendly staff. We camped at Farr Park Campground & Horse Activity Center in a Travel Trailer.

All grass with dirt roads. Power pedestals and water spigots in need of refurbishment. Standing water in some sites. Peaceful with a few trees. We camped at Farr Park Campground & Horse Activity Center in a Motorhome.

No frills but definitely peaceful. Grass sites that the grass was a little long due to lots of rain. Otherwise, great location to LSU and perfect for a one night stay. We were one of 7 RVs in the park. We camped at Farr Park Campground & Horse Activity Center in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Depending on the size of your rig, for me, I found a much easier route to the campground via Bluebonnet to Burbank then to Nicholson. Turn Left on Skip Bertman and then left on River Road. Park is approximately 2 miles on your left. If you come on weekends, you must go to the indoor arena on site to check in and pay.

Many of the sites hold water and can be muddy if it rains. Some of the sites have faucets that leak. Better to the back row. Great location. Nice place to walk as it is near the Mississippi levee walkway. Near casino and LSU. Good price. We camped at Farr Park Campground & Horse Activity Center in a Fifth Wheel.

Basic park with 30 amp and water hookups - and a 4 spot dump station. Grass parking spots. Small trees scattered around, minimal shade. Showers/restrooms clean no frills. Close to downtown Baton Rouge, casinos, Tiger Stadium & the excellent biking/walking trail on top of the levee. Watching the horses and riders is entertaining. We camped at Farr Park Campground & Horse Activity Center in a Motorhome.

1st come, 1st served. It tends to fill up during football season for home games or other special events. Otherwise, you can normally get a spot.

Electric is 4 30a outlets per power pole two in each box. Two sites use same power pole pulling through in opposite directions. Water pressure is 60+ psi, no sewer on sites. No WiFi. AT&T & Verizon 4G LTE Air Card service is useable but poor. AT&T Cell phone 4 out of 5 bars. No Cable. Sites are on grass field with plenty of room between door side sites. Satellite is easy in open areas. No long term tenants. Payment with Credit Card ok. The sites are pretty run down. A power pedestal was knocked down and some have bad leaking water making the site unusable. Office is not manned on weekends. You have to go to the big Equestrian office building off to one side behind the small office. If you like being around horses the Equestrian Park is great to see the horses and some of the riders. I would stay here again but would be cautious of picking a site. We camped at Farr Park Campground & Horse Activity Center in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

It is useful to have a power splitter to use the two 30a outlets (per camper) and connect your 50a power cable to it. It helps if your staying more than a night or two if you have one. You can get a splitter at the RV Dealer in Baton Rouge.

The campground is grass, part with trees, part open, located in a quiet, safe part of town near the river. Electric and water hook ups only, with dump station. When I was there, there were only a few other campers but when there are events at LSU the place fills with tailgaters. If you're lucky you'll get to see the horses in the paddock. All in all the best value of any place I've stayed on my 6 week trip. We camped at Farr Park Campground & Horse Activity Center in a Motorhome.

Very friendly staff in the office. You pick your spot and then go to office to pay. We found a fairly level spot. They have 30 amp power, water and a sewer dump is available near the front of park. Bare bones campground, but the washroom and shower area were very clean, although women’s toilet area had no functioning lights. Very quiet and dark at night. Nice pasture views around. No internet or cable available. Perfect location for sightseeing around Baton Rouge. We camped at Farr Park Campground & Horse Activity Center in a Motorhome.

Caution, if you use a GPS to find this it may take you the wrong direction. This was a great find. It is a bit rustic, being just a field with pull-throughs that were a bit muddy, but there were only 3 other campers there. The office people may not be there full time but they are very laid back about when you check in. There is a long bike trail along the Mississippi River levy just outside the park. One downside is that people hunt in the woods close to the park which was stressful for our dog. Bathrooms were adequate. We camped at Farr Park Campground & Horse Activity Center in a Fifth Wheel.

A gem in the rough with large pull-thru sites. Only 30-amp service. Although there are no sewer hook-ups, there is a large dump station. Setting extremely bucolic amid a large horse farm. Convenient to downtown Baton Rouge. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Farr Park Campground & Horse Activity Center in a Motorhome.

Strictly bare bones as far as facilities, but we love this park. The location is wonderful when visiting Baton Rouge; it is very close to town, but feels like you are out in the country. The sites are grassy and close together, but the park has never been crowded when we have been there so the campers usually spread out through the park so it doesn't feel cramped. The bathrooms are immaculate and the price is right-on! Also, watching the horses in the adjacent pasture is entertaining! We camped at Farr Park Campground & Horse Activity Center in a Motorhome.

What you see is what you get. It is easy to get in and out of the park. Park is able to handle any size units. Our GPS gave poor direction to the park. Use Downtown exits from interstate and pass by LSU. I would have rated this park higher except for poor lighting in the bathhouses and park is overrun by fire ants. We would stay again if we are ever in the Baton Rouge again. We camped at Farr Park Campground & Horse Activity Center in a Motorhome.
